Roseanne Barr Speaks Out, Describes Conversation ABC Before Show Cancellation

This whole situation is sad.

Published

Earlier this week, we all witnessed the complete and total implosion of Roseanne Barr’s career in real time after she made a controversial comment insulting former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett on Twitter.

Not long after the comments were made, the ABC network which just brought her sitcom “Roseanne” back for it’s 10th season, pulled the plug on the project’s second season, causing hundreds of people to lose their jobs.

Barr’s co-stars also took to Twitter to denounce the actress’s comments and distance themselves from the controversy as best they could.

Well, Rosie herself, in a series of now deleted tweets, has come out and described her conversation with Disney-ABC Television Group President Ben Sherwood.

“I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends,” wrote Barr in a series of tweets. “I begged them not to cancel the show.”

To make amends, she said she told Sherwood she’d do anything, including going on a publicity tour for weeks for free.

“I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. I’d worked doing publicity 4 them 4 free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis,” she wrote. “I begged 4 ppls jobs.”

“He said: what were you thinking when you did this? I said: I thought she was white, she looks like my family!” she wrote. “He scoffed & said: ‘what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.’ I begged 4 my crews jobs. Will I ever recover from this pain? omg.”

“I also told Ben Sherman [sic] that I would go in hospital to check my meds, bc the stress had made them less effective. I begged like 40 motherf—–s,” she wrote. “Done now.”

Barr went on to state that ABC is supposedly replacing the reruns of her show with episodes of “Cosby,” noting this was “hilariously gross.”

There’s no official word on if that’s true or not, but if so, wow, talk about hypocritical and tone deaf. Yikes.

Roseanne also said that she was “ashamed” to think that her child co-star Jayden Rey might think she doesn’t like her because she’s black.

“The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew 2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American. It’s the most gawd awful painful thing. I can’t let myself cave in tho.”

The real issue isn’t that she was fired and the show cancelled, but the fact that ABC is completely and totally inconsistent with their espoused value system, which seems to be the case all across the entertainment industry, as people like Bill Maher, who made an even worse racially charged comment, are still employed.

All we really want is for these people to practice what they preach.

Hollywood Steps Up To Defend Antisemitic Democrat

Are these Hollywood actors so blinded by their “resistance” that they are willing to become antisemite-sympathizers?

There are so many different anecdotes about history and its reputation for repetition that I’ll allow you, dear reader, to fill in your own right here.

We look to the past to ensure our future, because it is a far more sturdy indicator of the way the world works than any social science of our modern age.  We see populations rise and fall, along with their governments, all in a quest for freedom and happiness.

It is when we feel shame looking back that we have to be the most cognizant.  We can’t shy away from the ugly, hateful truths of humanity.

The Holocaust is a near perfect example, although I despise the idea of situating the word “perfect” anywhere near the atrocity that I am describing.

Liberating troops in the waning days of World War II, as instructed to do so by the governments to which they took oath,  led mandatory guided tours of the Nazi concentration camps for citizens living in the areas surrounding them.  This was not a punishment, although the misery and sorrow certainly weighed upon these people in the same way that guilt does.

No, this was an opportunity for education; an opportunity to say, “don’t turn your back on your leaders for one minute”.

It was antisemitic hatred, driven by leftwing socialists, that caused the Holocaust, and today, here in America, we have liberals in our Congress who have expressed prejudice against the Jewish people.

What’s worse?  Hollywood is siding with the antisemite.

Hollywood celebrities concerned about bigotry in America made one big exception this week to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she was accused of anti-Semitism for remarks she made about the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Ilhan Omar said in a social media post about GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy defending Israel.

The deplorable diatribe was lambasted by the sane among us, but, for some reason, Hollywood just couldn’t let this discriminatory democrat face the music.

And then this, from Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman who has already apologized for a stunt in which she dressed like Adolf Hitler while appearing on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show.

Are these Hollywood actors so blinded by their “resistance” that they are willing to become antisemite-sympathizers?

Tim Allen and Tom Hanks Moved to Tears Recording Toy Story 4

Published

As close to our heart as many well-loved movie franchises are, we can often forget that for the actors that bring the characters to life, the characters are that much more important to them.

Time Allen recently told Entertainment Tonight that while he and co-star Tom Hanks were filming the “Toy Story 4” script that they could barely hold it together while recording the final scenes.

“Both Tom and I, who met yesterday for our little guy’s lunch, we were both very very affected by the end of the movie,” Allen said. “So much so that he had turn around. He couldn’t even deliver his end of it, [and] I couldn’t deliver my end of it.”

“This has been over 20 years of he and I doing this, and it’s made an impact on both of our lives our families lives,” he added.

It’s amazing to think the Toy Story series has spanned two decades and that the once-fresh Pixar blockbuster has now become a well-loved classic.

The story is far from over though—Allen teased the next installment of the series.

“It’s a love story between Tom and his love interest… and then Buzz has to make a decision on how to move on with his life cause Woody’s making some different decisions…” he shared. “It’s so funny and so bright and so interesting and so affecting, towards the end.”

Allen also said there’s a good chance it will just keep on going.

“Once you’ve gotten to four, you’re passed that trilogy [point], so I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t do it, certainly,” Allen shared. “If you ask me, I’d say do five.”
